Mobile Form throws Connection Error

In MyFirstApp project (which I think is an introductory project to get started), I added a new mobile form. The form has a very basic list view for the department entity, and is expected to enlist the departments defined in the database. But when I run it, it throws a connection error. The precise message is: "A connection error occured, please try again". A similar form, works fine as a web-form. So, there probably isn't any problem with domain model or access definitions. Just that, the mobile form seems to be unable to connect to the DB. Please help.

Thanks.. It was IE8 issue. The mobile form works fine in Firefox.
